Reed answers questions about primary ballots

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -   With the primary election over, a number of voters are still seeing red over the new, "Pick-a-Pparty," voting system.  

Secretary of State Sam Reed was in Yakima on Wednesday to address questions and concerns about the voting system.

The new system is not only a problem in Yakima, but across the state, Reed said.

A number of voters didn't want to vote for one party and a lot of ballots couldn't be counted, and Reed is planning to take this issue to the legislature.

"I'm going to go back to the 2007 Legislative Session and propose if they didn't check this box, but in fact only voted for one party, then the voters intent is very clear, lets count those votes," Reed said.

Reed was also joined by Yakima County Auditor, Corky Mattingly.
